Rangers place Mike Kostka on waivers

The New York Rangers have placed defenseman Mike Kostka on waivers, as Dan Boyle is set to replace him in the lineup.

The New York Rangers have assigned center Chris Mueller to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. Mueller has filled in somewhat nicely as an injury replacement as the 4C on the club, notching a goal and an assist in seven games this year.
